Unlike the peak years of immigration earlier in the century, the vast majority of contemporary immigrant and refugee groups have their origins in either Asia or Latin America. Such a trend in immigration and demographics exerts a tremendous impact on American culture and society. The essays gathered here discuss theoretical and policy issues and themes such as the political and economic context of migration, job competition, labor organizing, changing ethnic and "race" relations, immigrant women in the economy and contemporary immigration politics and contribute to our understanding of the historical and contemporary dimensions of Asian and Latino migration in a changing global economy. "New American Destinies includes contributions from: Ruben G. Rumbaut, M. Patricia Fernandez-Kelly, Aida Hurtado, Robert Bach, Paul Ong, Peter Kwong, Roger Daniels, Nora Hamilton, Norma S. Chinchilla, Abel Valenzuela, David Lopez, Yen Espiritu and others.
